Oral B Electronic Toothbrushes
We highly recommend Oral B Electronic toothbrushes to help keep your teeth as healthy as possible in between appointments. These are quality toothbrushes designed by dentists for the best possible clean. They can have up to 100% more plaque removal, help whiten your teeth, protect your gums, and offer 100% brushing coverage. These toothbrushes do the work for you and ensure you’re not brushing too hard by alerting you if you are. We keep these in stock and available for purchase.
ORACARE Mouth Rinse
At Pentino Dental, we stock ORACARE Mouth Rinse that utilizes activated Chlorine Dioxide & Xylitol, which are proven to combat bacteria, virus, fungi, biofilm, and VCS. Because of this, it helps successfully fight periodontal disease, eliminate bad breath, battle candidiasis /fungal infections, disinfect the mouth, soothe dry mouth, control plaque accumulation, and attend side effects of cancer treatment.
Prescription Strength Toothpaste
For some patients, we recommend a prescription strength toothpaste. This toothpaste has more fluoride and other protective minerals than your traditional toothpaste. It can help prevent and in some cases reverse the cavity progression on a tooth. By using this type of toothpaste along with an increase in hygiene and a balanced diet, we hope to prevent new cavities from developing instead of only relying on the placement of fillings to protect your teeth.
We’d typically suggest this for patients:
- With a high cavity or decay rate.
- With numerous fillings.
- As an early cavity intervention.
- As a preventative treatment for patients with braces.
- With severe dry mouth.
- Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
- With other diseases/medications/genetic conditions that may predispose them to cavities.
The prescription strength toothpastes we carry are called, MI Paste and Clinpro . MI Paste and MI Paste Plus are a unique topical tooth crème that can be applied daily. MI Paste Plus offers the same great benefits of regular MI Paste and is enhanced with fluoride. Clinpro is a prescription-strength 5000ppm fluoride toothpaste aids in caries prevention, helps strengthen enamel and helps reverse white spot lesions. Available in three flavors: Vanilla Mint, Bubble Gum and Spearmint. These toothpastes are safe for anyone that can use traditional fluoride toothpaste.
